The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Ma & Paws Pet Supplies, we stock a range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Ma & Paws Pet Supplies in Hendersonville.
